Tell us a bit about yourself and how your Instagram account started 

Started around May 2016 after seeing all these big foodie accounts in London and the number of new openings starting to crop up! Near the beginning, I ended up in 2 different teams, the @LondonCheapEats team and @EatWithSteph - and they helped me grow over the past year! 

 

We’ve noticed you’re quite the fan of street food… What is it that keeps you going back for more?

The huge variety in dishes and flavours, unbeatable! 

 

If you could only eat at one market for the rest of your days, where would you eat and why?

Hawker House is definitely my home for life - I love the atmosphere there and the variety in not just food, but events they put on throughout the year 

 

If we waved our magic wand (probably more like a kebab) and granted you unlimited food from any one cuisine, which would it be?

Malaysian! The most incredible mix of Indonesian and Chinese influenced food! 

 

What’s the weirdest or best street food you’ve ever eaten?

I didn't eat it, but while in Beijing I walked past a few vendors selling donkey penis...

 

What direction do you think the street food industry is moving in?

Street food is becoming more and more popular, with weekend and specialty markets (see the Vegan Nights recently!) becoming more and more mainstream. I long for the day street food trucks and stalls are commonplace across London! 

 

If we took over the street food world for a day and made you God, what would you do?

I'd put a street food market in every borough and area! 

 

If you were a street food dish, what would you be and why?

No idea, there's just too much to choose from! 

 

What do you like about how Streats helps you get your street food fix?

These guys are highlighting some gems across London, so it's great to see something different that I may not have heard about before!
